"Trivia question: What is the most cited work in the mathematical literature? With an estimated 40,000 citations, the Handbook of Mathematical Functions may well be it. Edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene Stegun and released by the National Bureau of Standards in 1964, the Handbook was the result of a ten-year project to compile essential information on the special functions of applied mathematics (e.g., Bessel functions, hypergeometric functions, and orthogonal polynomials) for use in... favorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Functions, Mathematics--Tables
The application of vacuum thermo-couples to stellar work is described and the sensitivity of various metallic combinations tabulated. The thermo-couples finally used are bismuth-tin against bismuth-antimony, the material being in the form of wire 0.025 mm. diameter. The stellar image is received on a blackened disc 0.5 mm. diameter. Two such elements are mounted in each cacuum container. The 100-cm. Reflector of the Lowell Observatroy is used with these instruments, and results are obtained...
Quantum mechanical second virial coefficients of dilute ortho and para hydrogen have been calculated for the case of a Lennard-Jones potential.These computations cover the tempera * ture range from 0 K to 80 K.Special attention is paid to the behaviour of Topic: Quantum theory.
